He discovered his passion for computers at the age of seven and knew even back then he would be turning his passion into a career. Today he is one of our Technical Team Leads, specializing in Frontend Development.
We sat down with him virtually to learn about his journey, and a few valuable insights regarding team management.
What is your favorite tech?
What is a typical workday for you?
I moved to Baia Mare in 2019 to be closer to family and get more help raising my kids. Since then “working from home” is the norm for me. It starts with a good cup of coffee, then going through emails to figure out what my focus should be for the day, and a few meetings to help out any team members that might be stuck with some task. Around noon, I manage to do some of my own work, and in the evenings I usually have sync meetings with our clients, where we discuss progress, plans for the future and various aspects that need clarifications.
Why did you choose to work at AscentCore?
I’ve known and worked with much of the management team and many AscentCore colleagues before. I knew them to be great colleagues to have, so when I was invited to look at a project with great new technologies, the choice was easy.
What is your favorite AscentCore value and why?
My favorite value of AscentCore is ‘Relationships’. Having good relationships is the main reason why I took a job here, and I strongly believe that developing and having good relationships is the most important thing in “making the world spin round and round”.
What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your role?
Behind every project, every product, every line of code there are people. Understanding that, and thinking about people’s needs, constraints, motivations or passions is very important in building an efficient and productive team, ready to deliver the most amazing features with even the most difficult constraints or deadlines.
